Superb Soil

Alongside celebrating the creative spirit, The Bleddfa Centre is pursuing a new and slightly different theme at the moment: soil!

Satish Kumar delivered an inspirational and motivational talk at the Bleddfa Centre last year, and he left with us the take-home message about the importance of being in contact with and taking care of the soil, and the crucial role soil plays in human life.

We then welcomed renowned ‘No Dig’ gardener Charles Dowding to deliver a talk about an innovative method of gardening involving being gentle with the soil, and the benefits it has for individuals and for crops.

We are excited to continue along with path, and on Saturday 10th February 2018 we are screening the documentary feature film Symphony of the Soil. Using a captivating mix of art and science, the film shows that soil is a complex and mysterious living organism, the foundation of life on earth.

In three parts, Symphony of the Soil begins with soil science carefully and artistically explained by some of the world’s most esteemed Soil Scientists. The second part of the film focuses on human relationship with soil, especially our use of soil as an agricultural medium. The final section explores Big Picture ideas such as soil and climate change, water use, health and a variety of other topics that show why we must treat our soils with care.
